Andrew Newell Wyeth was a visual artist, primarily a realist painter, working predominantly in a regionalist style. He was one of the best-known U.S. artists of the middle 20th century. (read more HERE)
Wyeth happens to be my favorite artist, so when I head about Gates of Melancholy I was excited - and it did not disappoint!
In the words of the sim creator, shelly70, "This sim is created to emulate and elicit the feel in the watercolor paintings done by AW. Melancholy, nostalgia, starkness and the crispness of his work."
Please do visit... it's a sim beautifully done...

Versailles is a wonderful sim to explore. ice cream on the boardwalk, horses, vineyards... I could use lots of words to describe it, but I'd rather let my photos do the talking... and invite you to go to Versailles and experience it for yourself!

When I heard that Frisland would be going away soon ... I had to go and take some photos, wander around it's peaceful paths, and then I just had to share it with you!
(there is a rumor that it might come back in the fall....)
edit: that rumor is sadly untrue - read in the comments from the owner...
